The College Settlement
Again the College Settlement Chapter
would fain press her hospitality on all new stu-
dents of t lie college, and on all old students
who have not yet accepted it. What lias she
to offer, in comparison with other organiza-
tions at Wellesley? Very little, in one way.
No charming clubhouse, where friendships
can be fostered, programs presented, merry
little suppers enjoyed. No opportunity for
missionary or Bible study, scant opportuni-
ties for active work. Little in the way of
honors, dignities, or fun.
Why join it. then? There is only the old
answer — old, yet always new. Join it be-
cause in doing so you prove that you recog-
nize in the American college a stronghold of
democracy; and while vou share its happy
privileges, are not unmindful of the throngs
of the less privileged, in tenement and fac-
tory. You should not enter the delight of
fellowship, which is one of the best gifts that
Wellesley has to offer, without trying,
■ugh your representatives, to extend that
fellowship to those so near and yet so far
away. You want our radiant Wellesley, so
bright with earnest thinking and eager living,
to reach out through your gifts and prayers
and service, present and future, and to shed
illumination and warmth in regions where the
light shines faintly. You, to whom America
is giving of her best, want to help the college
of your love to bear her part in the inter-
collegiate movement for sharing that best so
far as may be with the newcomers of every
race who press upon our shores.
Shall we tell again the old story? An In-
tercollegiate Association, chaptered in all the
chief women's colleges, is governed through
"Electors" appointed by these chapters;
officers whose duties are not only to maintain
the association in the colleges, but to control
the large interests involved in the work of the
association. The College Settlement Asso-
ciation supports fellows in the settlement
centers. It controls three houses: The Col-
lege Settlements in New York and Philadel-
phia, Denison House "in Boston. Of the
work of these houses, — the representative
and nobly-sustained social service of college
women, — there is no room to speak. Their
thousands of frequenters from the working
classes, their clubs, classes, sewing-schools,
dispensaries, their lecture-courses, vacation
schools, summer camps and country homes,
their carnivals, dances, debates, attempts at
political education and propaganda, their
fellowship with all movements for industrial
justice, especially among women, — are not
these things all described in that little-read
tint inspiring document, the Annual Report?
What Wellesley girl can read the record
without a thrill of pride to think that these
splendid centers of wise fervor ami sane
activity are inspired and maintained by the
women's colleges, her own among the first?
But they can't be maintained unless sin-
joins the chapter.
Ami if she joins it, a strange and happy
thing happens to her. For I was wrong in
saying that the College Settlement Asso
ciation offered no clubhouse. It possesses
none, indeed, built of bricks and mortar, pre-
senting picturesque Elizabethan gables or
classic porticoes. None the less, a lovely and
stately house is shared by the members of
tile chapter. Their common home is a great
idea, — the Service of the People. And be-
lieve me, an idea, if it be true and great, is
the most permanent and altogether satis-
factory abiding-place one is ever likely to
find. Vida D. Scudder.
THE STUDENTS' BUILDING.
There is one subject which the solicitor for
many can broach to even the haughtiest
upper classman without a qualm or blush—
for the interest and enthusiasm of all go
without saying. Every loyal member of
Wellesley would do her utmost for the
Students' Building, and, therefore, the com-
.iiiitee is mi! uiuhig an appeal, it is trust-
ing to the cause itself, for its own appeal.
But it wishes to set before the college a
statement of what has been done already, to
make the Students' Building gradually
evolve from a hazy ideal to a reality of the
In the first place, the alumna? are taking
up the work, and co-operating with us. The
value of what they arc doing cannot be over-
estimated. They have an efficient com-
mittee, of which Miss Mary Holmes, 1892,
is chairman, and Miss Alice Brown, 1908,
secretary. They arc making all sorts of
plans for raising money in the coming year.
Since the first Student Committee was
formed in December, 1908, $12,135.93 has
been raised by alumnae gifts, student pledges,
a fair, and various entertainments. Plans
for this year depend for their success on the
loyal support of the college. Especially is the
committee looking toward 1914 for active
expression of their interest. The youngest
class in college is the one which will have the
longest influence, if it grows up, as it were, in
the hope of a Students' Building.
The committee for the year is as follows;
Constance Eustis, 191 1, ex-Officio.
Mary Warren, 191 1.
Alice Ake, 191 1.
Dorothy Applegate, 1912, Chairman.
Abby Brooks, 1912, Treasurer.
Dorothy Ridgway, 1913.
The First Barnswallow Play.
If a splendid beginning is significant, the
Barnswallows have much toward which to
look forward in the way of dramatic enter-
tainments during the present college year.
Tlie applause and hearty enjoyment of the
crowds who thronged the barn on Saturday
flight, Octobei twenty-ninth, testified to the
unusual success of this first play of tin season.
In presenting Mr. Shaw's" "Vou Never
Can Tell," with what might be termed an all-
star cast, the organization ha

usual first Barnswallow play. We commend
I lie ambition, for we believe in good begin-
Mr. Shaw' atirical faro is too well known
to need any comment here. Whether we
consider the jort ol literature, which starts
with one problem am! ends, if possible, with a
worse one particularly uplifting or not, is,
after all, a personal matter; and, at any 1
we derived 8 gn at deal of entertainment from
"Von Never Can Tell," it being alwa\
un to see something which is well
written, especially if it is as well acted as the
play in question was last Saturday night.
That Katharine Parsons had done some
very excellent work in coaching the play was
clearly evidi nt by the results; the action was
smooth, the parts, without exception, in-
telligently and interpretatively given. As
Mrs. Clanelon, the author of the. "Twentieth
Century Treatises," ami the champion of
modern womanhood, Florence Talpcv showed
a great deal of ability ami professional polish,
both in interpretation and in actual presenta-
tion. Margery Mackillop's Gloria, "the
woman of the twentieth century," "Learn-
ing's daughter," "Beauty's paragon," was a
trifle colorless, but nevertheless very attract-
i\ e. Mary Colt's presentation of the self-
Lmpiarjtant young man, Philip Clandon, was
easy, clever and amusing. The buoyant and
irrepressible Dolly was given by Imogene
Kelly with great dash and humor and charm-
ing spontaneity. Elinor Vliet, as Valentine,
gave some very finished and graceful work.
As the irascible and much-abused father,
Mr. Crampton, Kathcrinc Dufficld was
excellent, throwing herself into the part with
a great deal of appreciation. Helen Scinson,
as the solicitor, was also exceedingly good,
and afforded the audience a numbei of good
laughs, as did also Meta Bennett, who was
very delightful in the part of the nervous and
obsequious William. The pompous Mr.
Bohun was very pompously and amusingly
given by Mary Hewett. Augusta Rahr and
Ida Appenzeller were respectively a very
good maid and butler, keeping properly in
A very' large share of the credit for the
success of the performance is due to the
committee, with Alberta Peltz as chairman.

"Entered as second class matter, November 12,
1903, at the Post Office at Wellesley, Mass., under
the Act of Congress, March 3, 1879."
There is a popular idea among outsiders
that Wellesley is becoming self-conscious
and analytical, fond of dissecting all her
motives and ideals, to view them in the light
of modern social thought. "I cannot under-
stand you girls," was a remark made to the
Editor during the summer; "you are not hap-
py unless you are making yourselves misera-
ble, in your struggles for general welfare; you
wear yourselves out as well as everyone
around you, because you are so conscientious-
ly thinking of your neighbor." It is doubtful
whether this statement could be applied in
general to the Wellesley students, yet the
spirit of reform has, without doubt, become
a feature of college life during the last two
years. It seizes us spasmodically, individ-
ually or collectively, upon any pretext at all;
there have been large things, and small
things, important and unimportant. The
question is, whether it is a whim of the mo-
ment, caught from the greater world outside
our miniature one, making us, as some think,
self-conscious and one-sided, or whether it is
a wholesome attitude, a sane striving for a
more ideal, more perfect, college.
One thing is certain. Nothing could be

more deadly for Wellesley than perfect self-
satisfaction. If we saw only our virtues, not
our faults, we should soon degenerate into a
hopelessly uninteresting, stupid community.
On the other hand, rabid reformists are not
pleasant to live with; they wear upon the
nerves and exhaust the patience of all their
friends. It is the old cry against extremes,
yet it seems justifiable, with regard to college
life. We must, of all things, be sane, well-
balanced, able to see both sides of a question.
The writer is not trying to discuss the so-
ciety question, although she must admit that
it, of all things, shows the active tendency
toward reform. It has focused the attention
of outsiders upon the college, led many of
them to study us from afar, and pronounce
us over-conscientious and morbidly analyt-
ical. The point of view of these "outsiders,"
however, is not one to carry weight; they can
judge only from a superficial standpoint, not
being vitally connected with Wellesley, or
wholly interested in her life and aims. Their
lives are outside, in a very different sphere,
and they cannot see how, to us, college life is
all-absorbing, to the exclusion, perhaps, of
larger interests. For that very reason we are
no more capable of judging ourselves, our
standards, and our tendencies, than are they.
While they lack the sympathy, we lack the
perspective requisite. We are so wrapped up
in the interests of living, we are so swayed by
the influences about us, by the ideas of now
one strong personality, now another, that
we cannot see college as a whole. This indi-
vidual opinion, as to how the reform move-
ment, in its different phases, has affected us,
how it has influenced us, changed our ideas,
changed the ideas of our friends, may be of
value, but it cannot be taken as typical of
the college as a whole.

It is, then, to the Faculty, and to the alum-
nae, that we must turn, if we would secure an
unbiased opinion. The Faculty, especially
while living in close contact with us, have
yet the broader outlook and perspective
necessary for clear judgment. Those alum-
na? who live near enough to take an active
interest in college life may also be depended
upon for a more accurate understanding than
After all, the thing that vitally concerns
us, as students, is not what people think
about us, nor even so much what we are, but
what we ought to be. If we each have our
personal ideal, and work for it in the sanest
way, with the perfection of the whole in
mind, even if the ideals differ, the college will
be benefited. Untold good can be done for a
community by the wholesome attitude of
even a few of its members; an attitude which
looks at things fairly, clearly; an attitude
which is uninfluenced by the trend of public
opinion, but which shows individual thought.

CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION MEETING.
At the Christian Association meeting on October twenty-
seventh, in College Hall Chapel, the new members recommended
by the Board of Directors were formally received into membership.
Dorothy Mills, who led the meeting, explained some of the
phrases of the pledge and the constitution for the benefit of thes
new members. Many people have interpreted the words, "I prom-
ise to give my life to the service of God," as meaning "I promise to
become a missionary." Of course, everyone cannot be a mission-
ary, but by heart}' support of the Christian Association and loyalty
to friends, in college, and Christian living out of it, the promise may
be truly kept.
These few words of explanation must surelv have given a better
understanding to everyone of the teal work of Christian Association
in college life.
The college will have a rare opportunity next Sunday evening
to hear very directly from its own missionary, Dr. Ruth Hume,
through her father, the Rev. Robert A. Hume, who will speak at the

AUNT DINAH PACE.
Those members of the college who have contributed to the
support of Aunt Dinah Pace's orphanage will be interested in the
following extract from a letter recently received by Mr. Dana.
"I am glad to say that we have had a very good summer in
regard to sickness. There has been no fever in the Home this year,
which is fine for a house of fifty-four children and as many as eleven
sleeping in one room. I worked hard, kept the place clean, and
every little while gave each child oil and turpentine and the dear
Lord did the rest and blessed the home with health.
"I could not get all my store accounts cleared last year as I was
ill the last part of my trip and in order to keep in bread for the
family was compelled to give a mortgage on our home. I mean
this lot in town where we now occupy. And now that note
of more than six hundred dollars is due. It is paying-up time on
our year's expenses and I am much worried, for I do want to sell
this town place, but hate to sell it for such a small price, for it is
worth at least $2,500. A house and lot on a more back street than
this sold for $4,000, last week. It belonged to a white man, but the
house was no larger or better than ours. If I am compelled to sell to
get up this money to lift the mortgage I shall have to take much
less than if I could have it free and then sell. I ask your aid in this

IN THE MAGAZINES.
In the "Popular Science Monthly" for November, an article on
"The Relations between Teachers and Pupils," by Principal H. A.
Miers, is of peculiar interest. The paper was read this year before
the Educational Science section of the British Association for the
Advancement of Science, in Sheffield.
The paper considers, first, the general relation between teachers
and pupils, and secondly, the desirable and necessary change in the
method of teaching when the school training is exchanged for that
of the university. The author establishes the facts that at the
university as at the school, the personal influence of the teacher
upon the learner is of chief importance; that, at the university,
as at the school, success in teaching depends upon the interest
aroused in the pupil; further, that in younger pupils this interest is
intellectual matters is to be awakened by novelty, by attractive-
ness, while with the mature mind this is only to be done by providing
the student with a purpose and responsibility in his work.
The business of direct mental training should then be finished at
school, while at the university the trained mind should be given ma-
terial upon which to do responsible work in the spirit of inquiry.
Mr. Miers' views are of interest, not only to those of us who
intend to become teachers, but to us all in the formation of our ideal
The November "Century" has a delicate sketch by Elizabeth
Stuart Phelps on "Stories that Stay." The writer gives several
brief and vivid impressions of short stories that have remained with
her, and then summarizes tersely the qualities in which the power of
the stories has lain. These elements of permanence are originality,
humanity, force and finish. Literary quality, says the writer, will
sustain these elements, but without them no story can live.
"A Discovery Concerning Marcus Aurelius," by Arthur L.
Frothingham, some time professor of Archaeology and Ancient His-
tory in Princeton University, tells of the identification of the Em-
peror Marcus Aurelius' sarcophagus in the Vatican. The tomb has
been known as the "tomb of the Mother of Constantine," but
Professor Frothingham established the fact that, on account of its
workmanship and subject, its date must be somewhere from 170-
190 A. D., almost a century and a half before the time of the Chris-
tian Empress. From the zodiac sign of "Leo" on the cover, and
from the importance in which astrology was held at the time of the
tomb's construction, Professor Frothingham concludes that the
time must have belonged to either the Emperor Marcus Aurelius or
Claudius Gothicus. There are various considerations which lead

In the November "Atlantic," an article by John Husband,
electrical engineer in Minneapolis, called "A Year in a Coal Mine,"
gives a true account of the writer's personal experiences of two years
ago, in a typical coal mine of the Middle West. Mr. Husband ob-
tained work as a day laborer in the mine with no intention of ever
writing of his experiences, and he gives, in a singularly vivid picture,
of the difficulty, the horror, the interest of a mining life. He tells of
the wonderful machinery and high scientific excellence of the work-
ing of the mine; of the manifold old-world superstition found in it;
of the character, the aims, and the struggles of the immigrant
"Negro Suffrage in a Democracy," by Ray Stannard Baker,
considers the problem of negro suffrage in its legal and practical
aspects. Legally, Mr. Baker says, the principle of the political
equality of the two races is not infringed upon. Practically, there is
almost no negro vote in the South. This is due to two causes:
First, many negroes (as well as poor whites) disenfranchise them-
selves through ignorance or inability or unwillingness to pay the
taxes. Second, the intimidation of negroes by white men at the
polls prevents any negro, however well qualified, from voting.
The remedy of this situation Mr. Baker finds in the extension
of free education and intercourse among the people of both races,
since ignorance and prejudice are the underlying causes of the evil.
If the two races meet on such points of contact as business, land
ownership, common material pursuits, there will result, says Mr.
Baker, an ever finer and finer spirit of association which will in-
evitably lead to the extension of the soundest possible basis of negro
franchise. For Mr. Baker has "boundless confidence in the sense of
the white man, as well as in the innate capability of the negro."

In reply to a Free Press in the recent number of the News
on the attitude of "the others" toward 1914, I should like to offer
my opinion. So far I have not observed any attitude on the part
of anyone in Wellesley which 1914 could possibly tescnt. I have
not been conscious of any undue emphasis upon the unwholesome,
unnatural emotionalism of the Freshmen. If a girl squeals too
loudly during an exciting game of Ring-around-a-rosy, there is no
r^usi m why she shouldn't be stopped.
I have thought that we were treated as nearly like rational
human beings as possible. So far I have found nothing but kindness
and consideration toward the class of 1914 as a whole and toward
the individuals. We have not only been shown courtesy by every-
one with whom we have come in contact, but have been cordially
welcomed as necessary members of the big student body. Many of
the upper classmen who would undoubtedly have preferred to do
something else, have taken their time to help us teel happy and at
home and to teach us the ropes.
And I, for one, should like to express my grateful appreciation
of the fact. Charlotte M. Coxover, 1914.
Although we are reminded day by day in divers and sundry
ways of the utter selfishness of humanity, we can not but be en-
couraged on this point in observing the attitude of our Faculty
toward us. Wholly disinterested and hoping for no reward except
our benefit and progress, our various instructors endeavor in a
th( msand different ways not only to help us derive all possible good
En mi their own courses but also to help us come to a fuller realization
of all the many other benefits of Wellesley. An adequate example
of this thoughtful, untiring generosity toward us is the attitude of
Miss Jackson toward the students in the course English Composition
o. Having access to many of the old books mentioned in "Romola,"
which novel the course is now taking up, she undertook the laborious
task of copying down all the classical references, of looking them up,
and of placing these books where students can easily find them.
We are thus enabled to get a more vivid picture of the setting of the
novel under study, a truer idea of the spirit of the times and an added
interest in the whole work. We cannot thank Miss Jackson ade-
quately for the pleasure she has given us or for her splendid example
of disinterested generosity. Ought not this quality so constantly
witnessed in the attitude of our Faculty be an inspiration and a
source of optimism to us? 1912.
Nineteen fourteen, we have been latch- called upon by one of
our number to do more than "mutely resent this attitude that
meets us at College." If we have anything to resent, in what way,
please, are we to express our resentment, if not mutely? By scratch-
ing and hair-pulling? But surely that would betray "hysterical,
nervous creatures, lacking self-control and level heads," ami thereby
our own end would be defeated, for we would be found guilty of the
charge. However, it seems that all the Freshmen who have any-
thing to resent, (and this number is greatly in the minority, v.

happy to say), have expressed their displeasure in plain, emphatic
English. But, 1914, what do we find in this attitude that we ought
to resent so sttenuoush ? It is quite true that we have been wained
against hysteria and emotionalisrr . All of us aren't guilty of it, but
some of us are. So let those whom the cap fits wear it, please, and
say nothing that will give the Faculty and upper classmen a false
idea of our attitude toward them. We have found kindness, good-
will and even self-saciifice in their attitude toward us, and in our
first month here we have truly been "ministered unto." We are
deepful grateful for it, aren't we? And our spirit is not going to be
less noble than theirs, is it, 1914? 1914-
Of the possessions which Wellesley cherishes it would ^-em that
the College Charter ought to be among the first. Does it not then
seem a pity that when other priceless treasuri moved to
prominent points in the Library it should have been left hanging
in an obseure corner of the College Hall dining-room next t
kitchen door? Are there not a number of places in the Library where
it might be displayed to advantage and also be in less danger of
being destroyed by fire? C. H. P.
